Functional Trait Responses of Macrobenthos to Anthropogenic Pressure in Three Temperate Intertidal Communities
With the increasing impact of human activities on marine ecosystems, there is a growing need to assess how the components of marine ecosystems (e.g., macrobenthos) respond to these anthropogenic
Influence of Anthropic Impacts on the Functional Structure of Aquatic Invertebrates in Subtropical Wetlands
Changes in land cover are the main threats to integrity and biodiversity of wetlands. Here, we evaluated the effects of agriculture and urbanization on the functional traits (FT) of aquatic
Structural diagnosis of benthic invertebrate communities in relation to salinity gradient in Baltic coastal lake ecosystems using biological trait analysis
This study is based on biological trait analysis (BTA), which provides a link between the distribution and biological characteristics of species. The paper investigates differences in the structure


Macroinvertebrate Functional Trait Responses to Chemical Pollution in Agricultural–Industrial Landscapes
Both physical–chemical and biological indicators are used to assess the ecological health of ecosystems. The functional trait composition of communities has the potential to predict the impact of
Can macroinvertebrate biological traits indicate fine‐grained sediment conditions in streams?
Excessive inputs of fine‐grained sediment can damage aquatic ecosystems both by degrading habitat condition and by directly impairing biota. Recent research has improved our understanding of how
Can biological traits of stream invertebrates help disentangle the effects of multiple stressors in an agricultural catchment
It is indicated that invertebrate traits can differentiate the effects of multiple stressors and provide insights into potential mechanisms, and a suite of traits is proposed that may provide the strongest differentiation of stressor intensities.
